Tyler Green's interview with Rose Art Museum Director Michael Rush.

I believe there is a sit-in at Brandeis this morning. As I commented in Ed Winkleman's blog today, this situation seems to be yet another symptom of academia's adaptation of The Corporate Model. I can't tell you how many things have changed in academia during the ten years I spent at FIU. when you read the Chronicle of higher Education, you see that the essential mission of so many universities has completely reversed itself. Aside from this highly publicized situation which is getting a strong response, I wonder sometimes if the students are even aware of the changes that are taking place. They are, after all, the consumers in this corporate model.
